2,001 Posts - Forever Colourful

Yes, you read that right: two THOUSAND (and one) posts! I can't believe I have been blogging for more than 7 years (I don't do most things for longer than 7 months).
This is just as good an outfit as any, I suppose. I can't pick a favourite.

  • Jacket - Holt Renfrew, thrifted; last seen here in August 2014 with yesterday's blouse
  • Skirt - CiCi; last worn here in March with killer shoes
  • Shoes - Wonders Ayers, Fluevog (converted by Vizzini, dyed by me); last worn here in September 2014 with pink plaid

So much colour! I think if I had to pick something that makes me stand out, it would be my playfulness with colour. I'm never afraid to mix colours or play with as many colours as possible. My style has changed a lot in 7 years, but my love for colour has never waned, despite flirtations with neutrals at times.
I have no desire to stop blogging, but as always, I take it one post at a time. I have tomorrow's outfit picked out and will select my accessories tonight before bed (a very relaxing habit). And that will be 2,002.

The stuff:
No bling for you! I just wore mismatched stud earrings.

Thank you, thank YOU, all my dear readers. Some of you have become friends, some visit for a while and then go away, some lurk. Knowing that somewhere out there in this great wide world, people are listening, looking and smiling...well, that's the best. Thank you.


  1. *de-lurk*
    Sheila, I love your blog and I love your outfits. And your Fluevogs :)

  2. Seven years, 2,001. Your one-day-at-a-time is clearly working. I love dropping by and it has been so wonderful meeting you, and L, in person! Many thanks.

  3. I'm still here!!!
    Congrats, it's a huge milestone!

  4. Wow! Congratulations. I am glad I found your blog, your outfits are always inspirational.

  5. 2,001 posts is incredible Sheila!

    It is wonderful to have your blog to look back on and be a 'time capsule' of your style over the years. I hope I keep going to have even half as many posts as you! :)

    The way you wear colour has always been the thing I've admired most about your blog! :)

  6. Wow - you've been a blogger for longer than anyone else I know! Congrats, and please keep going - I love your blog, your style and your cat. xox

  7. Yay!!! on so many posts… it seems like my first post was yesterday too.

    If I had to define your style, one of the words I would use is colourful, never dull.

  8. Congratulations from a lurker! Your blog is one of my very favorites to read. I love your style, especially your shoe collection.

  9. 2,001 - a Sheila odyssey! Congratulations, what a huge achievement, and do keep going, I get so sad when bloggers I like up and leave the fold!
    Fabulously colourful and well-fitting outfit, love it.
    PS. Just scrolled through your last two posts (I am way behind...) and had to say how much I adore that 70s maxi dress! xxx

  10. WOOHOO! Go Shelia! So many posts, so many fantastic outfits.

  11. Congratulations Sheila! I don't always comment, but I am a frequent visitor. Your fashion journey is so inspirational that I look forward to your posts. here's to another 7 years!!! Champagne, confetti and cupcakes!!!

  12. Thank YOU. You are my morning ritual - coffee, toast, what Sheila (and Kasmira) wore. It makes the day!

  13. Love your blog! I have been reading it since your 30 x 30 series (can't remember which year was it). You inspire me to dress as I feel as I grow old and keep me on track about weight and sport. As long as you do it, I will be 'listening'. Thank you

  15. Congratulations on 2001 posts, Sheila!

    Delurking for the second time in seven years from Sydney, Australia to let you know that I still love and read your blog every day and that it is still my first read of the day!

  16. Congratulations Sheila! What a tremendous amount of time and energy that translates into. This is my sixth year of blogging, and while I have no intention of quitting, I have had to scale back on the frequency of my postings

    I enjoy seeing the outfits you put together (along with your drool-inducing shoe collection), and I hope that I'll get to meet you in person one day.
